  • Pianist Dmitri Alexeev performs with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra Saturday and Sunday.

8 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $14-$52.

The latest in the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's Masterworks series features world-renowned Russian pianist Dmitri Alexeev, who has performed with orchestras all over the globe. ASO Conductor Philip Mann told KTHV's Dawn Scott that Alexeev is "a true legend in his own time, a Russian performer that is so well respected all over the world, that not only is he sought after as a soloist by the great orchestras of the world, but he's on the juries of the Tchaikovsky competition, the Van Cliburn competition. It's a true coup for the Arkansas Symphony to be presenting him with us from our stage to our audiences."

The program includes performances of Prokofiev's Symphony No. 1 in D Major, Op. 25 "Classical," Shostakovich's Concerto for Piano No. 2 in F Major, Op. 102, and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 2 in C Minor "Little Russian." The program will be performed again on Sunday at 3 p.m.

On Tuesday, ASO presents "Mozart Meets P.D.Q. Bach" at the Clinton Presidential Center, 7 p.m., $22.
